Whistler welcomes yet more snow
In an exclusive interview with Eurosport, Walchhofer said that it was a "great feeling" to record his second back-to-back victory and "very important" to get back to winning ways.
"Bormio is one of the toughest courses in the World Cup and I think it's good for me on this difficult course to win one of the best races," he told Eurosport.
Walchhofer's win would not have escaped the attention of anyone on a Bormio ski holiday over the festive period as it was the first time a double had occurred in the men's downhill.
Meanwhile, the Austrian is looking forward to the rest of the ski season which he faces with "more self-confidence".
Those enjoying a ski holiday in Wengen or a Chamonix ski holiday over the coming weeks will be able to catch Walchhofer in action in the next two rounds of competition.
